The main attraction will be the Christie Center, an integrated and synchronized sports venue-themed experience that provides a glimpse into the visual experiences that are achievable for even the most budget-minded user. The Center features on-court projection mapping using Christie Boxer and Pandoras Box Quad Server; warped and blended visuals including the iconic Wolf Head, 3D mapping using Christie Mystique; numerous LED walls, large-format LCD panels, and the future of Christie technology.

“Booth visitors can tap into the combined decades of experience and expertise Christie has in enabling creative opportunities that were never before possible,” said Kathryn Cress, vice president, global & corporate marketing, Christie. “If you dream it, then Christie ingenuity combined with our display and processing solutions can create it for you.”

Content and show control systems highlight ease and speed of Christie technology

Introduced June 1 and making its global debut at InfoComm, the Christie Spyder X80 delivers 400 percent more pixel management capacity than anything on the market and is the only video processor capable of managing 4K at a 60Hz refresh rate on every channel.

Built on standardized SDVoE technology, Christie Terra solutions support video formats up to 4K at 60Hz and provide unprecedented performance capabilities transporting and processing of uncompressed, zero-frame latency, artifact-free video over affordable 10G Ethernet components.

Thanks to Christie Mystique, even the most intricate projector configurations takes minutes, not hours, to align - saving enormous overhead costs for users. Each version of Mystique - including the new Christie Mystique Install 3D Projection Mapping Edition - flawlessly integrates with Pandoras Box to create customized, memorable experiences.

Multiple LED walls and more at Christie booth

Five LED walls are strategically placed around the Christie Center, creating striking backdrops and inside the booth’s bar are the new Christie Access Series panels - making their global debut. The front entrance features Christie MicroTiles® in a 4 x 8 wall with content managed by Christie Spyder.

The new Christie DHD1075 and Christie DWU1075-GS laser phosphor projectors make their global debut at InfoComm this year. Combining several Christie HS Series features including more powerful grid-based warping and blending with Christie BoldColor Technology, all in a compact form-factor, both projectors deliver sophisticated, high brightness projection to even the more budget-conscious user at a low cost of ownership.

Whether used in fixed installations or event staging, the DHD1075 and DWU1075-GS are durable, rugged and built for extended, heavy use over a period of many years while delivering super-quiet operation and a powerful, vivid presentation every time.

Offering the perfect balance of performance and price, the new Christie Access Series of LCD panels - also launching at InfoComm 2017 - deliver 4K UHD resolution and USB playback and provide an interactive solution for dynamic presentations in meeting rooms, higher education or engaging retail applications such as menu boards.

The Christie Access Series includes 55 and 65-inch models designed for 16/7 operation. For customers looking for a larger display, both portrait and landscape mode, and 24/7 run times, Christie Access Series offers 75 and 86-inch models, which are perfect for high-use settings including hotel lobbies, airport terminals, and mission-critical environments such as control rooms.
